Domestic Warranty Information

For Hitachi Tools Only

So, here you are…project time…ready – set – go! You pull the trigger and all of sudden you recognize a familiar stench…You say to yourself, “Self, I know this can’t be coming from this high-quality, reconditioned tool I just purchased six months ago!” “What?! It is!!” “Great! It is now after the first 30 days, death is knocking at the door of this tool and my project is now going to be behind schedule! Those Big Sky Tool buffoons!”

Now let’s be nice…those “Big Sky Tool buffoons do have a manufacturer’s warranty available to help keep you on track with your project and get you up and running as quickly as possible.

All Hitachi reconditioned tools, batteries, and chargers are backed by a one year manufacturer’s warranty. The reconditioned Hitachi warranty is valid for the United States ONLY. Warranty issues occurring after 30 days from the date of purchase will be handled through the local Hitachi Service Center or by the Hitachi Factory Service Center. The Hitachi tool warranty is not with Big Sky Tool. All battery and charger issues occurring from date of purchase will have to be sent directly to the Hitachi Warranty Center.

Customers have two options to handle Hitachi warranty tool issues.

Option 1 For Hitachi Tools Only – The customer has the option of taking the defective tool to a local authorized Hitachi service center.
